Treating Myself with Hunkermoller*

Leave a Comment

Sian Padded Underwired Longline Bra

Hey Everyone, this is a post that is a little different for me, as I have never really spoken about fashion on this blog, never mind Lingerie, however when Hunkermoller reached out to me I jumped at the chance to work with them and help show people the beautiful pieces that have. 

Now I have never been that body confident, I have my moments sure when I genuinely love my body and then there are days when you pick at any flaws with it. The latter days are more frequent and so looking at myself in the mirror is something I try to avoid.  

Personally a way I have found to help boost my confidence is to wear Underwear I feel good in. This is where Hunkermoller comes in, they have a huge range of  Lingerie in different styles and fits to suit everyone. You can even find your size here and everything from T- shirt Bras to Sport Bras to even Swimwear. All the pieces are so pretty and I couldn't decide when I first stared looking at their incredible range

After a while of debating between what to go for I decided on the Sian Padded Underwired Longline Bra (above) and honestly it is so pretty. I genuinely feel confident when I wear it. The birdcage detail on the front and lacy material adds so much charm to the bra.I adore the colour, the pretty pale pink tone is really lovely and compliments the design of the bra.

  I would be lying if I said that the bra would cheap, as start from £12 for a basic bra and then the price goes up, but hand on heart the products are worth it, they will last for a long time. Mine is a really sturdy material that I know will last for longer than the ones I buy at shops like Primark or New Look.

 It is a little cliche to say that Underwear makes you feel good, but with this Bra, I do. I feel good when I wear it, and a bit of body confidence is always good. I highly reccomend having a look on their websites they have so many amazing pieces I wish I had the money to buy them all.

How I Practice Self Care*

Leave a Comment
Self Care has become a priority for me in the past couple of months for the simple reason of, I don't look after myself, or better yet I don't care for myself. Not in a negative way just I don't give myself a chance to focus on me and how I am doing.
Treat Yourself

When life gets hectic, you need to take a step back and breathe, because for me is when I don't give myself a break with work and university. The way I de-stress and take some time for myself is treating myself to a little purchase, now this can be something big or small, It can range from a book to a new dress, or if I really want to splurge I will go for a Luxury Perfume Gift Set . These aren't often occurrences, but it is a nice little pick me up, when I need cheering up.
Have a Bath 
I will always say one of the best ways to relax and take some time for yourself and care for yourself is to have a bath. There is something so calming about baths. It gives you alone time with your thoughts, no outside distractions. You can forget about your life and enjoy the hot water enveloping you. The hot water soothes your muscles and relaxes you both mind and body. For me it is my first port of call when I need to relax and give myself some self care.
 Read a book
Books, are my solace and have been since I was little. Escaping into a fictional world helped me to get away from my life when I found it to be too much. Over time I became a huge bookworm, and I wouldn't have it any other way. It spawned a love of reading and writing for me. To this day there is nothing like settling down with a good book for a couple of hours and escaping and it is such a treat for me when I get to do this due to my busy schedule of University, Work, Exercising and Dating. It lets me retreat into worlds more brilliant than my own and I love it.A reader lives more than one life and I love every life I lived through books. 

 Listen to an Audiobook/Podcasts

This is a new thing to me. I have suddenly started listening to audiobooks and podcasts. The majority of what I listen to are Non fiction books and topical podcasts. There is something I find interesting in listening to how someone else thinks and the words they choose when they are talking to no one. I am currently to audio books about self empowered, which genuinely raises my mood and makes me feel like I can do anything, which I have to admit is a great feeling. With podcasts, I like listening to ones that talk about current topics, whether they are about literature, culture or even tinder fails. I find them fascinating.
Use a Facemask/ Cleanse my skin

Now self care isnt just about taking scare of your mind, hear and soul, it also applies to your actual body. I will be the first to admit that I do not take care of my skin, I leave my make up on overnight regularly. My skin care routine consists of a moisturiser, primer and cleanser to remove it at the end of the day. Using a face mask or a actual cleanser is such an infrequent treat for me that it really feels like I am taking care of myself. Its a treat knowing I have taken time for myself and I feel better for it. 

These are just a few ways I like to practice Self Care. Please let me know how you practice Self Care, I am always looking for new way.

This Year Will Be Different

Photo by Jacob Hilton on Unsplash
Last year was a lot. It was filled with new starts, goodbyes, a few big and little changes and most of all a lot of personal growth. 

2017 was the year I grew up. ( I think ) You know when life throws so much at you and you have either two choices; crumble under it all (trust me I felt like doing that a lot) or you get through it because you have to. I did the latter. To say that there were low points in my life last year would be an understatement, I lost people I loved and said goodbye to things I cherished. There were times when I wasn't happy for a long time, but there were so many good points too, that made me so happy. 

I found new friends and grew my already loved friendships more. I grew in confidence both in myself and appearance, a surprise for me since I have battled with body confidence since as long as I can remember. I got amazing news and saw plans become realities and actually made a few dreams of mine come true, which is insane when I had wished for them for so long. 

Although I got through 2017 with a few scraps, I healed the majority of my wounds and loved myself for the triumphs I had gained. But there is one thing I know to be true.


This year I am going to be so much more than I ever was, last year was like standing on a spring board patiently waiting and this year is when I ready to jump and go for whatever comes for me. I am living in a new city, living a life solely to pursue my dreams (yes that cliche I know but its true) and I am not letting any opportunity get away from me.  

It feels like my life has been leading up to this point in my life and there is no way I am not going to make the most of it. It would be a crime to myself if I did. This year will be the year I won't give up, I won't back down, I won't think less of myself and I most certainly won't accept less than I deserve. 

This year will be different. I'll make sure of it

Places I Want to Travel to in 2018.


2017 has been quite a year for me. A lot has changed, I have done so many things such as move house and travel to places I have never been before. I love to travel and this is one thing I want to continue in 2018, so when Destination2 contact me about working with them and talk about my travel Bucket List for 2018 I was more than happy to say yes. So without further ado here is my 2018 travel Bucket List.

Verona, Italy

This has been on every bucket list I have ever had. I had loved the country since I was little, from seeing it in films and pictures and would love to go there for myself. The city is incredibly beautiful and full of history, including the setting of Shakespeare famous play, Romeo and Juliet. I have loved Romeo and Juliet, since I first studied the play in primary school. I would love to go and see La casa de Guillieta and see the famous balcony. The landscape is stunning and historic. If there's one place that I could only visit next year it would be here.


I am determined to actually tick this off my list in 2018. It is so easy to travel to and so close so there is no excuse not to.  Friends and family have gone to Scotland and said nothing but good things. I would particularly like to visit Edinburgh during the Fringe Festival and the Isle of Skye.  The highlands seem so beautiful, it would be incredible to explore them and see the historical buildings and ancient castles from times past. The lush green countryside would be an idyllic escape from the city living I have been used to since childhood.   


Until this year I never expected that I would want to visit Oxford. I recently went to a conference at Oxford Brookes University and we went out for drinks afterwards, and so we had to walk through the city. I fell in love with it instantly and I can not wait to return. The architecture is breathtaking, it is obvious that the city has a long and prestigious history. When I return I will spending my time there admiring the buildings, Universities and libraries. It may not be on everybodies travel bucket list but it has proven itself to me that it is worthy of a full visit to see everything it has to offer.

South Korea

For the past couple of years I have become obsessed with South Korea and practically everything to do with it. The Language, the history, the culture and the food. If money wasn't an issue, I would be on a plane headed there as soon as possible. South Korea has so many incredible places to go to such as Seoul, Jeju, Hongdae and so many other places. I would love to visit the palaces that are there as well, as I have loved watching Korean historical dramas as of late and would love to see one in real life for myself. It would also give me a chance to try and learn to speak and read Hangul. 


Ah, Paris. The city of love and light. It is beautiful there, there is no denying that, it has so much to offer. No wonder the majority of people will visit the city at some point in their lives. I haven't made it there yet, but I hope in 2018 I will. I want to walk along the Seine, visit the Lourve and see the Mona Lisa with my own eyes, do everything a tourist can do whilst in the city and also make a quick trip to Shakespeare and Co. to pick up some books, and of course try some of the treats form the famous french patisseries. 

So there is my travel bucket list for 2018. I hope that I can tick some of these off next year, if not there is always next year and the year after that. It is a bucket list after all.

Ice Skating at the Tower of London

1 comment
It is well and truly the Christmas Season, so its time to get the Christmas tunes on, dust off your old Christmas jumpers and start buying mince pies and mulled wine. It is no secret that I love Christmas, and when I say I love Christmas, I mean I LOVE Christmas. 

So when I was contacted to attend the press night of the Tower of London Ice Rink, I was more than happy to accept the invitation.

Not only was this my first blogger opportunity since living in London, but the first Christmas related thing I have done this year. Also a little known fact that I adore Ice skating, (partly because of the winter Olympics and partly because of Yuri on Ice!) Although I have once been Ice Skating once before. I was more than happy to give it a try, and at the Tower of London of all places! 

When I arrived, it was impossible to not be blown away by the Tower of London and how it had been decorated to accommodate and reflect the ambiance of the Ice Rink. On the side on the Tower itself there were projections of Snowflakes that made the building look incredibly festive and beautiful. 
Once the event began I headed straight for the ice rink.

 I went to get some Ice Skates and headed to the Rink. Im going to be honest when I first got on the ice, I was practically like Bambi. It was quite nerve wracking since I had only been ice skating once before in my life. It took me about half an hour and a friendly fellow blogger to help me stay on my feet and get me to feel comfortable on the ice. (He was a very good skater so he was doing laps around me after helping me) 

After I had a fair amount of time on the ice, I had started talking to a group of students who were lovely and invited me to sit with them and enjoy the drinks that were offered. After a little while chatting we were offered to have a tour of the Tower itself.
Now I am quite a history and architecture nerd, so I was more than happy to go on this tour. We were led on the tour by one of the Guards (Beefeater) of the Tower. He told us everything from the history of the tower to the everyday running of it. I truly enjoyed it and the Tower buildings are beautiful, I truly felt that I learnt a lot.

I had an incredible time at this event. It really got me into the christmas spirit and I met some really lovely people and made some friends. I would certainly recommend paying a visit whilst it is still open. 

Merry Christmas Everyone!

TV Shows to Binge This Season *

1 comment
Hey Everyone!
 Autumn has finally come and the long nights have started to crawl in, normally wen this season rolls in, I rarely leave the warm cosiness of the house. So whats one of  the best things to do when its cold outside? Binge watch TV shows! (Although I do this all year round, the colder months are when I really get into TV) So when Panasonic asked me to work with them to help promote their Panasonic Oled 4K TV  and talk about my fave TV shows to binge right now, how could I say no? 
Panasonic Oled 4K TV (Available at )

My picks for binge worthy TV are a varied bunch, what can I say I like a lot of different things, hopefully there is something in thus lists that interests you and could make you want to watch it. My choices range from Comedy to Drama to Historical and Foreign. I wasn't joking when I said it was varied. So lets gets started shall we ? 
Jane The Virgin 

I was first recommended this show by a very good friend of mine, and I am so glad they did. I fell in love with this show from the first episode. Its such a feel good show with a really great cast and brilliant plot lines. It follows a young woman called Jane who is accidentally artificially inseminated (ie made pregnant) but shes a virgin, and the show follows all the twist and turns this brings her life. Although it is a comedy show it deals with some truly real matters ie; having your heart broken, pregnancy and a lot more but I don't want to spoil it for you. I couldn't praise this TV show more, I started watching it whilst I was getting over a break up and it was the perfect pick me up, and gave me dome really great advice. If there are any that I'd say at least give a try it is this one. I guarantee you will not regret it.
(Available on Netflix)

Okay listen to this. The devil living in LA and taking a break from ruling hell by helping to solve murders on earth. Interested ? I thought you would be. Now I'm not one for religion but this shows takes all the mythology around angels and Lucifer and creates an incredibly enjoyable show. Its also based on the Neil Gaiman Comics, so you know it's gonna be good.Tom Ellis plays the fallen angel perfectly, his british accent, his sarcastic and twisted demeanor mixed with his moments of humanity and compassion make you really love the character and keeps you watching. 
 (Available on Amazon Video)

Now if you haven't heard of this show, you have been living under a rock for the past couple of years. Outlander is historical romance show. It follows Claire, a WW2 nurse as she travels back in time to Scotland 1743. There she must survive without being captured by the English, and try to find her way back to the present day. This is an incredibly popular show and for good reason. It is based on a book series by Diana Gabaldon starting in 1991 and the series is still going now. So when the TV adaptation was announced it already had a huge fanbase. Although I should say it is quite adult, there is a fair bit of gore and sex, so its up to you if it is something you consider watching but I have to say the plot is incredible and so well thought out. It has made me fall in love with Scotland and its history. 
(Available on Amazon Video) 

Okay I am coming to this so late in the game. Everyone has already raved and obsessed over this show but I didn't pay any attention to it. I recently wanted something new to watch and i heard everyone talking about the second season being released, so I gave it a try. I am hooked! I have already binged the first series in a couple of days and Im almost done. It focuses on the town of Riverdale where a teenager , the star football player is missing and is then found to be murdered. The show follows a group of teenagers trying to find out who killed Jason Blossom. I have never been so quickly hooked onto a show as this. If you were a fan of Pretty Little Liars and are wanting to watch similar this is perfect.
(Availaible on Netflix)
Miss Panda and Mr Hedgehog

Now fair warning this is a Korean show. (I told you I like foreign shows) I love Korean shows and have become obsessed with them over the past year, but this has got to be one of my favourites, I have re-watched it several times. It focuses on a bakery called Cafe Panda and three central characters ; Pan Da-Yang, The owner of the bakery. Go Seung-Ji, the patissier and Choi Won-il, the CEO of the competitor chain bakery. It is a comedy show, filled with friendship, family, love and best of all Cake! Please dont be put off for the fact that it is Korean, there are English Subtitles to watch it with. I truly hope a few people give this show a go because it is an amazing feel good show.
(Available on Netflix)
Once Upon A Time
Now, this is a series that has been going for a long time. It is in its 7th season and still telling an amazing narrative. Its plot centers around fairytale characters who have forgotten who they are as they now live in a land without magic, in our world. Until a little boy finds his long lost birth mother to help bring magic back to the town of Storybrooke. I binged through the first 3 seasons in less than a month. I was completely hooked. If you're a fan of Disney or fairytales, this is definitely something check out.
(Available on Netflix)

So those are my top picks for TV shows to binge watch through this season. I hope you found something that interested you within this list and gave you something new to watch.

Scouser Down South


I know its been a while, since I last wrote a blog post, but I have a good reason ... I moved to London! Thats right, this little Scouse girl has moved down south to the capital. Its a very big change but its an adventure. 

Obviously its going to be different from living in Liverpool where I lived with my family and surrounded by my friends, but I have been here for 3 weeks now and I'm starting to settle in to my new home. I live in a student house with six other people, all lovely thankfully. 

The reason I made this huge move away from my life was because I had gotten a place at University to study my Master's degree in publishing. I have two weeks of uni already and I could not be more sure of my decision to come here. I love my course and everything I am learning about, because its everything I need for my career after I graduate. 

To say its a big change is an understatement. Yes although Liverpool is a busy city filled with life and people, it is small in comparison. London is practically the definition of a busy city, although I live in a quiet suburb near my university you still see the business of London in everyone's rushed gazes and pace. 

Living in another city, is always something that will take a while to get my head around, and this is definitely true about London, growing up I heard so many things about the Capital, that when I got here I felt the urge to get out there and see everything and take on everything head first. Which is what I'm going to do.

So London, are you ready for this Scouser down south ?
